president, erick, of the united states, bill clinton describe what he says is a changed mitt romney. >> i had a different reaction to that first debate than a lot of people did. i thought, wow. here's old moderate mitt. where you been, boy? i missed you all these last two years. >> erick, has mitt romney done the etch-a-sketch move to the center these last few weeks? >> oh, i think everybody moves -- gosh, i wish bill clinton is on the campaign trail. he's so much fun to listen to. this is moderate mitt. although i don't know that it matters. a lot of the polling that's come out show a lot of voters still consider mitt romney, even those who saw the debate and the polling after the debate consider romney more conservative than they are and consider closer to him than barack obama. i'm not sure the moderate mitt care kature really matters. >> this poll that came out, a bunch of states asked the question among likely voters, who has strong leadership qualities between these two candidates? look at the quinnipiac university cbs news, "new york times" poll in colorado. mitt romney, 67% strong

. >> morning, y'all. good to be with you. >> reporter: hillary clinton was mocked as kentucky fried hillary when she went over the top at an african-american church. >> i come too far from where i started from. >> reporter: in this case -- hillary was actually performing lines from a gospel hymn made famous by reverend james cleveland. what the politicians do is not to be confused with an actual medical condition called foreign accent syndrome. it changed this florida woman's accent following a stroke from this -- >> we've got fabulous things -- >> reporter: to this. >> i felt like i was going bloody crazy. >> reporter: for politicians, acquiring an accent -- >> the miracle of that baby -- >> reporter: sometimes can't be overcome.

by bill clinton in his second term, that is a much different approach than jimmy carter and barack obama. >> reporter: to put his vision into action, romney will have to win first, which explains why he made an impromptu stop at a nearby elementary school. at this stage of the race, the pictures matter almost as much as the policies. romney did mention the obama campaign's trump card on foreign policy, the killing of osama bin laden, but he seemed to give the credit to what he called, quote, military and intelligence professionals. romney will now shift back to the economy with campaign events coming up here in virginia and also in iowa and ohio. wolf? >> jim acosta, thank you. let's go back to gloria borger. what was mitt romney trying to accomplish with this marriage foreign policy speech today? >> well, i think he was trying to do a bunch of things. first of all, on the leadership question, trying to establish his credentials on foreign policy, as you know, he's made some mistakes when he's been off the cuff on foreign policy, particularly after the ambassador was killed in libya. als

bite in a way people can understand. i don't know, bill clinton does it. is it that hard to learn how to explain? >> yes, it is. >> he's done it before. >> he's been in elected office now for an awfully long time and he hasn't done it. you'll remember, when he started listing back before he changed his mind when he listed one of his biggest failures or the first was not being able to sell his story. and part of it is is that he can't speak in the short answers and sound bites. >> this is rare now to have republicans saying that the president's main failure is that he doesn't know how to speak clearly and talk about serious issues. >> no. >> in telling stories in a narrative. and i think in a debate, i think he had an off night clearly. he admits that. lots of people admit that. one thing we know for sure about this president and one thing he's been able to do all along is to provide clarity for complicated issues people disagree on but bring people together through clear language. >> the president is resilience. he has to be resilient to have gotten through -- >> competitive. >> and c

moderated, i think there were eight or nine democrats up on the stage, of course, hillary clinton and john edwards, and they were all up there. but biden did really well. chris dodd, by the way, did well also. he knows his stuff. the big problem he has occasionally is he says something he probably shouldn't say. and i'm sure he's being told, be careful at this debate. >> and he's particularly strong on foreign policy, and the obama administration, based on recent events in the middle east, is vulnerable, particularly in light of what happened at the consulate in benghazi. so it's a chance for obama to use his strengths in foreign policy to perhaps reinforce american's fears that the obama administration does have a grip on our policies in that part of the world and that they do know what they're doing and we don't need to worry about the course of events over there. it's going to be interesting. i think it will be more fun to watch than the obama/romney one. >> that was a pretty good one to watch as well. i love all these debates, but that's me. i'm a political news junkie, as you know. >>
